Didn't find a duplicate in Bugzilla. Don't know if this should be under the extensions manager or perferences. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Software Update -> Check Now 2. 3. Actual Results: Crash followed by Talkback starting up. Expected Results: Check for updates?
Cannot reproduce. Restarted Firefox. Checked for updates again. Updates Available were: 1. Quality Feedback Agent 2. DOM Inspector 3. Two Themes from ftp.mozilla.org (Doodle Plastik 22.214.171.124 & Doodle Classic 1.5.9) 4. One Extension from downloads.mozdev.org - EM Buttons 0.12.4 All installed successfully. Leaving this open until someone has a look at the talkback data. JdG
How many times does Firefox 0.10 want me to install the same updates on the same day? "Updates Available"; "Installing Doodle Classic 1.5.9" followed by "Firefox could not install this item because "install-pi.rdf (provided by the item) is malformed. Please contact the author about this problem". Could this be the cause of the crash originally? OK. In the theme manager I now seem to have both Win32 and Mac versions of Doodle Plastik and Doodle Classic. Can installing the Mac version of a theme on a Win32 platform cause a crash?
Not reproducable. Please report the Doodle problem in separate bug against mozilla.org/Update, it's their problem (most probably). Did it crash before or after showing the window with available updated components?

Summary: CRASH Firefox Extension Manager Check for Updates → Crash checking for updates
> Did it crash before or after showing the window with available > updated components? Before. This was the first time I used the check for updates functionality and it crashed almost immediately before giving me a list of updates to install. Perhaps it only fails at the first attempt? I'm going to mark this WFM since I can't reproduce this crash.
